INTRO

Charles Manson
è conosciuto in tutto il mondo come uno spietato serial killer, in pochi sanno che in realtà non ha mai ucciso nessuno. Simbolo del Male ed icona della malvagità, Manson è ormai diventato un mito contemporaneo e le verità della sua storia si perdono nella leggenda e nell'aneddotica.
Questo Blog non vuole in ogni caso occuparsi di violenza e di fatti di sangue, ma di musica, perchè Charles Manson prima ancora di essere implicato nel drammatico caso Tate-LaBianca è stato ed è tutt'oggi un musicista. Qui troverete una descrizione di tutti gli album di Manson e della sua comune, la Family. Quando possibile ci sarà anche un link per ascoltare o scaricare i pezzi.
Tutto questo per far conoscere anche in Italia la musica di un uomo che, date le circostanze, non ha avuto la possibilità di esprimere la sua arte.

11-11-2016 Charles Manson turns 82

Older than us, younger than us, with his infinite music mind. Happy Birthday Charlie!
Here a rare recording of Manson singing a parody version of the song Girl from Ipanema:


Unearthly Trance / Wooden Wand: People say I'm no good/ Get on home

Unearthly Trance / Wooden Wand: People say I'm no good/ Get on home. Released in 2010 on Chrome Peeler Records as a split 7". Happy listening!


Get on Home by Uncle Acid

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are an English rock band, formed in Cambridge, UK. In 2013 they released a 7" called Mind Crawler, with two songs. One is "Get on Home" by The Family Jams. I think they did a good work:


Charles Manson Monster of Rock



Valerio LEG is an italian artist that loves music. Last year he did a beautiful exposition in Pisa called Monsters of rock, and surprise! Charlie was one of the twenty one rock icons painted by Leg. It's not so common to find people that know Charles Manson is a music master. So Valerio and I have started to be friends and we decided to work together on a funny project: Monsters of rock the Book-LP.
It seems an LP but it's a book, it is a book but every page is a poster: 10 new Rock icons by Leg. Tracklist: Johnny Cash, Lemmy, Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Marley, Freddie Mercury, Lou Reed, Angus Young, Nico, Prince, Mick Jagger. As you can see no Charlie in the book, BUT it's a great project anyway...
You can purchase Monsters of rock on our crowfunding here: MONSTERS OF ROCK

The Way Of The Wolf remastered with Seges Findere


The way of the wolf by Charles Manson and Seges Findere has been released in the first months of 2016 by the german label Neue Aestethik. Side A of the lp contains some remastered songs from Charles Manson The way of the wolf by Pale Horse Incorporated, side B is dedicated to the black metal band Seges Findere playing some Manson songs taken from the session that Charlie recorded in 1967. A cd version of this album is produced by the american label Behold Barbarity with the same songs.
What should I say? The way of the wolf is a super beautiful and incredible album but the covers of Seges Findere... I must say I don't like Metal very much and to me it's very hard to conceive Manson songs sang that way.

Here Invisible Tears by Seges Findere:
